Well, once again, I gave up on myself. It's Nov 3, 2008 and I'm getting back on track again...


June 30, 2008. The day I changed my life.

I thought I had reached that point before - completely fed up with my weight and all the unhappiness it brought with it. I dieted and exercised for a few days, sometimes weeks, once even for months. Sometimes I lost weight, sometimes I gave up before that even happened. This time is different...

I think part of me has always thought I deserved to be fat for one reason or another: I'm lazy, I have no will power, no self control, any other reason I could come up with to never really try. Two nights ago I had a breakthrough. Something inside me snapped. I grabbed a dry-erase marker and wrote the following in large block letters on my mirror:

I AM THE WEAKNESS. I AM THE PROBLEM. I AM THE SOLUTION.

I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WILL TRY & TRY AGAIN.

I DESERVE TO LOVE MYSELF AND RESPECT MYSELF. IF I DO NOT FEEL I AM WORTHY, THAN MAKE MYSELF WORTHY.

That last line really hit home with me. If I really feel that I do not deserve the love and respect of MYSELF, instead of giving up and saying "Oh well, I deserve this body because of blah, blah, blah", than change what I don't like. I am the only one with that POWER.

Suddenly, turning down pizza, ice cream, any other temptation I ever had is so much easier now. That momentary pleasure is no longer worth it. I now understand every weight loss success story I ever read and I know I will have my own one day!
